Mike Hall recently contacted me and has graciously offered me an opportunity to be a contributor of the Two Institutions site at the recommendation of my friend Josh Brown. Below is TI’s purpose statement:
Two Institutions.Org exists to call attention to the need for reform of family and church culture so that these two institutions work together, within a Biblical framework, to build God’s kingdom.
My first post will be up on May 16. I am delighted and humbled at this opportunity.
On another note Two Institutions will be sponsoring a conference coming up based on Steve Wright’s book reThink. Tony Kummer of Said at Southern has recently written a review of the book. If you would like to see his thoughts on the book click here. If you were at the Band of Bloggers in Louisville, KY this year you should have received a copy of this book. Randy Stinson of Southern Seminary will be one of the keynote speakers at this event along with some local Pastors. From what Mike told me if I can remember correctly he is going to try and make the audio available. Don’t hold me to that though. The conference is going to be in Raleigh, NC so if you are going to be around the area it might be worth your time to stop by. One great thing about it is that it is FREE! Below is some information about the conference. Clear here to be directed to the actual site.
The reThink Conference is for youth pastors, pastors, education pastors, parents and youth leaders who desire a greater biblical understanding of how the two primary institutions that God has established in the Bible, the family and the church, work together in the context of youth ministry.
Please Note: There is NO CHARGE for this conference.
What some are saying about the reThink conference…
“reThink will revolutionize our ministry on the West Coast with Students and their parents. This is the biblical wave of effective Student Ministries of the future. See you in May!!!”

“After reading reThink, I was hoping a conference would follow. Steve Wright is about reclaiming a theology of family and wants to equip and empower Church leadership to be difference makers. I jumped at the opportunity to sign up! Do not make excuses for making this a priority!”
